The Next Governor of New York?

New York Secretary of State Randy Daniels is very clear about which party offers the best opportunity to blacks today -- his own, the GOP. And while he thinks that we could stand to do more outreach to the black community (a sentiment I share), he is right when he says
"Anytime a party [Democrats] gets 90 percent of the vote, the other party didn't show up to compete, and there is no way you can win if you don't compete," said Daniels, a Democrat who turned Republican about two years ago and co-leader of the state's Republican convention delegation.

Daniels is often mentioned as a potential Pataki successor. I think he sounds like a keeper to me.
